HYGIENIC MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser — 28 February 1914
HYGIENIC MILK. According to a French authority standard hygienic milk should have been put through the following pro cesses. 1. Analysis and testing to remove watered, skimmed, - soured or low grade milk. 2. Filtering or straining to remove "nechanical impurities such as hairs, dust, etc. 3. Pasteurisation at a temperature above 176 degrees Feah. and immedi ate cooling to about 40 degrees to destroy pathogenic microbes, such as those of tuberculosis, diphtheria, typhoid fever, etc. 4. Bottling or sealing in sterilised containers. It should then be kept at a low temperature until sold. The first country to establish this standard for milk was the Argentine Republic, which enacted statutory re gulations as. long ago as 1890. These were soon followed by similar laws in various European countries. In Argentina the treatment described has become obligatory.-"Chicago Produce."
